Touching Lives

Touching Lives

Sometimes an encounter with a kindred spirit is enough for you to know the purpose of living. We tend to wander through our lifetimes to wait for someone who can help to balance out our energy & show us a different side of life. There are no finite rules surrounding how a person will come into your life and touch your being. They can highlight a reason for you to heal or let go of certain events or emotions. They are like a mirror or have a similar life experience as you, helping you to understand yourself better. May be they come into your life to help you on your path right when you need it or maybe work together to support global causes or a bigger vision. At times it can be very difficult to feel connected when we see so much pain, hurt and anger in the world, however the idea of the kindred spirit acknowledges that we share a similar mission in a similar time and space dimension.

Sometimes these kindred spirits are referred to as StarSeeds. They are highly evolved souls that were sent to help bring about new knowledge and wisdom in order to help raise our consciousness. At their core, StarSeeds know that Earth is not their true home and sometimes this can create feelings of being out of place or alone. But they know what is higher than self and are consciously enlightened.  They are naturally talented in the area of technology, physics, engineering, space travel and metaphysics. It is believed that StarSeeds have a programmed “alarm clock” inside of them that allows them to awaken at different points in their lives in order to fulfil their destiny. I don’t know how far this is true but if I think about it, it is quite possible. But I feel I resonate more to the twin flame belief rather that the concept of StarSeeds.

When you meet your Twin Flame, there is an instant feeling of “knowing” and connection. People might comment that you look alike or that you look “good together.” Often, the two of you will have very similar personalities and reflect the light and shadow sides of each other. Google says: As soon as your Twin Flame is created, you enter Earth at the same time or within a few years of each other. The only exception to this would be if you have had to reincarnate multiple times in order to properly connect with each other. Essentially it all comes back to self-love.

The relationship does or does not need to be romantic, but there is often a connection felt on all levels. There are challenges but they are more about the “self” than the other. The relationship brings about a desire to team up together in order to create. The relationship almost forces you to respond with love as a way to survive together. As per spiritual threads often soulmate relationships are experienced on a mind, body and soul level, whereas Twin Flame relationships are experienced on a mind, body, soul and Universal level. There are also no real rules with this, so the ultimate way to determine the difference of what you experience. However away from labels, it doesn’t really matter what type of relationship you are in as long as it feels good to you.

I don’t use fancy words with thoughtful meanings, but I call such people, Natural Caregivers. You’ll know if someone has this trait, because people will often tell their secrets to them in mere minutes after meeting them. When someone has just been in a car accident or broken up with their boyfriend, they wrap their arms around you and for the first time that day, their body fully relaxes. These caregivers make you feel at home in their presence. Safe. Heard. Cared for. There’s so much beauty in having a trait like this. Without much effort, you nurture and care for those around them. It is a gift their highly conscious souls have. The flip side is when you carry the Nurturer Gene, fixing other people can easily become a destructive self-identity. Because “Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity. In cultivating compassion we draw from the wholeness of our experience – our suffering, our empathy, as well as our cruelty & terror. It has to be this way.” – Pema Chodron

A healthy caregiver not only nourishes the needs of others, but also nourishes his/her own. You are not responsible for the world pain. Share your talents and resources. Generously give your time and attention. But you cannot pour a magical tonic on the wounds of every person walking the planet. It’s not your job. And if it were, it’d be a disappointing job because you’d fail at it every single day. Nourishment of the whole of us, for all of us—which includes you. Self-nourishment might look like hiring a babysitter so you can have a romantic getaway with your spouse (Laughs). Self-care might mean taking the job on the other side of the country, even though it means you’ll only see your parents twice a year. Give your love. Freely and deeply. And trust that even if you’re not there to ‘fix’ them, everyone will be just fine. Here’s to those who inspire us and don’t even know it. One day we might meet in an unexpected corner where I will look into your eyes & thank you for all the smiles you never knew you gave me by just being present. Thank you for reminding me what butterflies feel like!

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood?

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

Touching Lives

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Touching Lives

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
